Notes and Editorial Reviews
Doreen Carwithen is better known as the devoted wife, Mary, of the composer William Alwyn. When Chandos brought out this CD in the mid-1990s, it revealed her to be a substantial creative personality in her own right: she emerged as a warmly communicative composer, the style of her work owing more to Walton than to her husband. Her writing is strong and purposeful, sometimes adopting syncopated rhythms and stirring melodies, and always enhanced with brilliant and inventive orchestration. We are therefore delighted to reissue these works and at mid-price for the first time.
